Central Bucks South High School’s Marching Titans marching band won first place in division IVA at the Knight of Sound Marching Band Competition September 28. North Penn High School, the host, played an exhibition show and did not compete. “It’s a great start to the marching band competition season,” said CB South Band Director Michael Robinson. The Marching Titans were Pennsylvania State Champions in 2011 and won several awards in national competition, as well.
The 96-member Marching Titans competed at North Penn High School winning their division, Overall Best Percussion, Best Overall Effect, and Best Music, Best Visual, and Best Color Guard. Their program, called “Catharsis”, includes three musical selections, featured musicians, and color guard.
On October 13th starting at 6:00 PM, the Marching Titans will host their own invitational competition for high school marching bands from around the state. The 8thAnnual Sights and Sounds Marching Band competition will be held at the CB South football field at Folly and Pickertown Roads in Warrington. The event is open to the public; tickets are available at the gate. Tickets are $10 for adults, $5 for students and seniors; preschool children are free.
“The students spend a good part of their summer and four or five days a week outside school hours rehearsing for a production of this extent,” said Robinson. “Their hard work pays off with the level of musicality and performance. The program is really worth seeing; on October 13th the community can also enjoy numerous other high school marching bands at Sights and Sounds, as well.”
